Read full description of the books The Further Adventures of Hank the Cowdog:Yep, it’s Hank again….
Hank’s the bearer of one intense job. But he bears it nobly. Why, only this morning he rescued the ranch from an evil monster bird with bright shiny feathers that made a terrible roaring noise as it swooped over the ranch. But Hank held his ground and the frightened bird swooped off to terrorize another farm, leaving Hank pretty pleased with himself.
But a few minutes later when Sally May gives Hank’s fried egg to Pete the barncat, Hank is furious. Through the bedevilry of Pete, Hank gets his nose run up against the barb-wired fence and gets it all scratched up. He stares at his injuries, hoping they’ll improve (time is said to do that, you see), but they don’t. Instead of getting better, things get worse, because all that staring at his own nose made Hank catch a severe case of Eye-Crosserosis, don’t you see. And now, Hank can barely see! What’s to be done about this?
Well, Pete the barncat decides to take advantage of Hank’s affliction and afflict him worser. By the connivingest of strategies, Pete leads Hank out into the middle of the prairie….. and dumps him there. Hank is lost on his own ranch! What a disgrace!
Thankfully, he runs across his old buzzard friends, Wallace and Junior. They tell him of someone they think can heal his Eye-Crosserosis: Madame Moonshine, a queer owl. But the way to her cave is fraught with many dangers – especially to someone with befuddled vision.
Can Hank make it to Madame Moonshine’s cave? Can she heal him? And most importantly, will Hank be able to get out of her cave?

Read information about the authorJohn R. Erickson, a former cowboy and ranch manager, is gifted with a storyteller's knack for spinning a yarn. Through the eyes of Hank the Cowdog, a smelly, smart-aleck Head of Ranch Security, Erickson gives readers a glimpse of daily life on a ranch in the West Texas Panhandle. This series of books and tapes is in school libraries across the country, has sold more than 7.6 million copies, is a Book-of-the-Month Club selection, and is the winner of the 1993 Audie for Outstanding Children's Series from the Audio Publisher's Association. Publishers Weekly calls Hank a "grassroots publishing phenomena," and USA Today says this is "the best family entertainment in years."
Hank the Cowdog made his debut in the pages of The Cattleman, a magazine for adults, and when Erickson started getting "Dear Hank" letters, he knew he was onto something. So in 1983, he self-published 2,000 copies of The Original Adventures of Hank the Cowdog, and they sold out in 6 weeks.
When teachers began inviting Erickson to their schools, Hank found his most eager fans. Teachers, librarians, and students alike love Hank. According to some Texas Library Association surveys, the Hank the Cowdog books are the most popular selections in many libraries' children's sections. The lively characters make excellent material for reading and writing lessons, and turn even the most reluctant readers into avid Hank-fans.
Erickson was born in Midland, Texas, but by the age of 3, he had moved with his family to Perryton, Texas, where he and his wife live today on their working cattle ranch. They have 3 grown children and 4 grandchildren. His advice to young writers is, "Write about something you know. Try to leave your readers better off than they were before."
